1 So shall we sing, the changeful story ended,
When in the harbor our frail bark has sail’d,
‘Mid storm and calm, ‘mid days and nights of sorrow,
Praise His dear name, not one good thing hath fail’d.

2 Oft times it seem’d not thus; so drear our prospect,
Anguish and fearful care well night prevail’d;
But now with all our hearts and souls we witness
His word is true, not one good thing hath fail’d.

3 Why not now sing a song of grateful gladness
Whenever anxious tho’t and fear assail?
‘Tis for our good all things shall work together
Since God hath said not one good thing shall fail.

4 Yea, even in the hour of desolation
When pass our best belov’d beyond the vail,
Leaning on Him who wept on earth with mourners
He will not fail us tho’ our hearts should fail.

5 Then in that joyful day of glad reunion
We shall together tell the wondrous tale
Of all the way the Lord our God hath led us,
His loving kindness which not once did fail.
